Meet The Dog Squad

Hi! We are Tracy and Scott and we are thrilled to be a part of Who's Your Walkie?!  

We were lucky enough to relocate to Santa Cruz in 2007 and this has become our home.  We love animals and as (almost) empty-nesters have been searching for something that combines our love of outdoors, hiking, and animals and Who's Your Walkie? is the perfect fit! 

We have a combined 50+ years of experience working for Fortune 500 companies – mostly consumer product and service organizations.  As soon as we relocated to Santa Cruz we knew we’d never leave. 

We are parents to Sadie, our 12-year-old blind Rat Terrier and Lucy, our 7-year-old Pom rescue.  When we aren't with the Walkie Dog Squad you will see us walking with these girls around the west side.   We are also parents to 4 kids without fur: Nicholas - 35, who has Down Syndrome and lives with us here in Santa Cruz, twins, 29, Hannah, who is a Hospice nurse in San Francisco, Christian, a musician (aka DJ Minnesota) and Connor, our youngest child, who sadly passed away from melanoma in 2014 at the age of 20.  We also spend time volunteering and fundraising in our community and nationally in Connor’s memory.

We’ve been searching for something that is the right fit for this next chapter in our lives.  When we met Tiffany (Who’s Your Walkie? Founder and previous owner), we knew that Who’s Your Walkie? was perfect for us. It’s local. It’s community-based. It’s outdoors. It’s dogs and cats.  All of our favorite things. 

We are committed to ensuring your dogs have safe, stimulating and fun experiences every day and we look forward to getting to know each one of them!  There’s nothing better than seeing a dog smile and tail wag!
